Huddersfield Garden of Remembrance

Huddersfield Garden of Remembrance

Huddersfield Sea Cadets joined British Legion members and veterans in the town's Market Place for the Dedication of the Garden of Remembrance.

A brief service took place and two minutes silence was observed.

 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Smartly presented Sea Cadets from Huddersfield turned out in force at Asda in November where several members helped to raise valuable donations towards the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

The Sea Cadets are no strangers to collecting, having sold poppies and pins during last year's Poppy Appeal and in previous seasons. There was a good turn out of cadets, supported by the unit's Chairperson, Lt Cdr (SCC) Judith Clarke RNR Rtd, and Commanding Officer, CPO (SCC) Kiran Kundi, along with Adult Instructors, Cadet Instructors, and Committee Members.

The Poppy Appeal raises money to help members of the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force, Reservists, veterans and their families.
